Since we started working together we have helped them design, develop and maintain some of their most critical systems. We have completely rebuilt their videos storage and retrieval services to improve performance, reliability and search accuracy. Implemented new user authentication flows through social network accounts from Facebook and Google. We have created new CMS(content management system) which enables its editors to process more news and manage other related content.
